Welcome To The West End is a musical showpiece featuring local, young actors brought to the Market Place by Little Starz Productions (LSP).
The production company, started up by Louise Fahey, aims to run a yearly showcase for local talent. This particular event, on June 27, 28 and 29 features children from 12 different schools including local schools such as Little Starz Academy, MADS, Drama 4 Kids, Armagh Drama Society.
The cast, was picked following an open audition day workshop process in the Market Place in January.
Louise said: “We were lucky to hand pick the finest of young and teenage actors in Armagh.
“It’s great to mix all the kids together for a show and the cast are having a ball and have made so many new friends from this already. They have been training since February for this show.”
Little Starz Production’s ‘Welcome To The West End’ is a story about a variety of characters who are about to embark on a London West End Tour Bus for a day trip on the “new modern musical tour”. As we get to know the characters, we soon see how the musicals featured in the show relate to them and how they bring the magic of the famous stories to life. This features the new London West End musicals - Matilda, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Legally Blonde and Mama Mia!
It is written, produced and directed by local Armagh talent and West End child star Louise Fahey. Since moving from London ten years ago she has opened her own drama schools for young performers and now has her own production company and actors agency.
